Dept, of Pending Family Enlargement

Tickets Bought, Hotel Booked

We'll be out in Seattle from Aug. 3 to Aug. 7 to meet our new grandchild. Emily's mother gets first dibs, but Andy wanted us out there as soon as possible after Emily's mother leaves. 

The kids (should I be calling people in their mid-to-late 30s kids? Yes, because I'm almost three decades older than they are, and because Andy will always be my child) have been suffering in 100-104F heat for the past few days. I'm sure you can imagine how comfortable that makes someone who is two weeks or so from giving birth. The temperatures "plunged" to 85F today, and are supposed to drop further into the 70s later in the week, so I hope Emily feels a little better.

Poor Andy; he's had video calls with us three times in four days. I think he needs the support of people who've been, you know, parents, and specifically his parents. We've certainly been getting lots of questions. I was queried about my experience birthing him. That was interesting. 

Ah well. Back to bingeing Guardian ....
